[image]This featured image shows a class 100 clean room at the NASA Glenn Research Center used for fabricating sensors and electronics for jet engines and spacecraft. - NASA
Researchers fabricate sensors and electronics for NASA missions in the Microsystems Fabrication Laboratory, a class 100 cleanroom located at NASA Glenn. These sensors and electronics can withstand extremely harsh conditions, such as those found in the hot sections of aircraft engines or on the surface of Venus. Electronics fabricated at NASA Glenn using silicon carbide have performed for thousands of hours at 930 degrees Fahrenheit...

[image]Mercury 7 50th Anniversary - NASA
The Mercury 7 astronauts examining their "couches." Each astronaut had his own couch specifically molded to fit his body to help withstand the G-loads of the launch. Plaster casts of the astronauts were created in order to properly mold the couches. Left to right: Alan Sheppard, John Glenn, Walter Schirra, Scott Carpenter, Gordon Cooper, Deke Slayton, Gus Grissom and Bob Gilruth. Gilruth was Director of the Space Task Group, which planned and managed the Mercury Project.

Rocket scientist Bryan Palaszewski, Combustion Branch, explained the effects of super cold (cryogenic) liquid nitrogen on film canister rockets. The demonstration involved a film canister with three drops of liquid nitrogen that warmed and expanded at super high speed, sending the canister on a long 30-foot flight into the Space Power Facility high bay area. The children were allowed to touch the canister after the flight and see the effects of the nitrogen--the super cold nitrogen froze the wat...

[image]Flight Over Venus - NASA
Now that humans have mastered atmospheric flight above the Earth, researchers at Glenn have set their sights on flight above our neighboring planets. Venus provides several advantages for flying a solar-powered aircraft. At the top of the cloud level, the solar intensity is comparable to or greater than solar intensities above Earth. The atmospheric pressure would make flight much easier than on planets such as Mars...

[image]Balloon Rocket Demonstration - NASA
NASA Glenn aerospace engineer Bryan Palaszewski uses cryogenic liquid nitrogen to cool the air inside a balloon at NASA's Plum Brook Station. As the air is cooled, it changes from a gas into a liquid. The balloon deflates, because molecules in liquids are more closely packed together than molecules in gases. Since most high energy propellants like hydrogen and oxygen are gases at room temperature, NASA uses the same process to cool rocket propellant for space shuttles in order to keep the rocket...
